Snow Storm As Big As 2009 Winter Storm Blizzard Expected for Christmas

Throughout US history, winter storm blizzards date back as far as 1816 to as late as 2009. The most vicious winter storm in recent history was the 1940 Armistice Day storm, which left at least 150 people dead. Most frequently occurring between November to January, the storms are known to originate from the Z streams in Arctic cold air and hover in North America in early winter. Weather authorities alert Americans to be ready to prepare for the winter with gear including food and emergency electricity.

This Christmas, which is in less than a week, is one of the biggest holidays in the world. However, the arctic storms headed toward much of the Northwest to the East are likely to make traveling quite hellish. “White Christmas” is wonderful unless seen from inside the Airport due to travel delays and cancellations.

According to, “The best chance for an inch of snow blanketing the ground on Christmas morning is in the higher elevations of the West and from the Northern Plains and upper Midwest into the eastern Great Lakes. However, areas from northern New England into portions of the Ohio Valley and Central Plains could also see a white Christmas, depending on where Winter Storm Elliott brings snow this week. Any snow that falls this week will not melt before Christmas due to the cold blast that arrives later this week.”

In recent the US history of winter blizzards, Virginia Beach, in the boundary between Virginia and North Carolina, saw its biggest snowfall of the Christmas season in 2010 with 13.4 inches. The city of Virginia Beach refers to warm and hot temperatures in summer and mild weather in Winter, some of the residents have never seen snowfall in winter until 2009 and 2010. At Christmas time, in the Northwest part of VA,  lived in towns, with at least 2 feet of snowfall in the year 2009.

On this Saturday, (Christmas Eve) Washington DC is expected a high of 26 F, and a low of 16 F with ice on the roads due to Thursday and Friday’s rain.

Stay warm this holiday season, and stay safe.
